The Pro-Life Advantage for Candidates Continues, Including among Independents

June 2011
National Right to Life News;Jun/Jul2011, Vol. 38 Issue 6/7, p18
The article discusses the advantage of political candidates holding pro-life views over pro-abortion candidates as reflected in the results of the 2011 Gallup Values and Beliefs survey. The study finds more and more Americans holding pro-life views and abandoning pro-abortion positions. Further, 79 percent of Republicans hold pro-life views while only 44 percent of Democrats hold the same view. Since most Americans are pro-life, candidates who share the same view are often favored in post-election polling, says the author.
